So if you are a makeup junkie, in love with doing the right kind of makeup that our stars do then continue reading.
Janhvi began the tutorial with first explaining that she had to go for a brunch party so it is a day time makeup look that she is going to show us all. She began the tutorial by first tying up her hair.
This is her go-to look which she normally does and not for an event as that is when she has makeup artistes helping her out. Here since she had to wear a white dress, she opted for a peachy look.
Step 1: Concealer. She used the yellow corrector as she was told by someone that she has a yellow undertone.
She dabbed a bit under her eye. Meanwhile, she mentioned that she hates it when you can tell that the person is wearing makeup, she likes it subtle.
Next she took a foundation and dabbed a coin size on the back of her hand, in the shade ivory. She infact used it as a concealer because she doesn't like using a foundation. She applied it again over her under eyes where she had used the other concealer.
Next, she worked on her eyebrows by using a spoolie first and brushing out her eyebrows to know the shape she has to work into. She then used an eyebrow pencil to cover the gaps and define a shape.
Next came an eyeshadow, where she picked a brown shade on her brush and besides applying it on her lids, she shaded her lower lash lines as well. Reason? To make them look softer and bigger.
Then she applied some of the brown shadow on her crease as well, in a "windshield wiper motion". Next came a highlighter wherein she picked up a darker colour for the eyelid, to give her eyes a dewy eye look.
Now onto the kajal, she used a jet black pencil which she used on her upper eyelids. Janhvi shared that she picked this up from her mother Sridevi whom we all know had beautiful, big eyes.
Now came in the blush, where she picked a darker pink shade. Quick tip from Janhvi: If your blush is deeply pigmented then dab off your brush before applying it, so that you get rid of the extra colour on the brush. Then smile and apply the blush. Janhvi shared that a blush can make you look fresh even when " you are dying inside".
Next came in a highlighter which she loves. Janhvi shared that she always tells the makeup artist that "mujhe highligher mein duba do". She even applied some on her forehead and on the bridge of her nose.
She finished her look with the pretty pout by using first a lip liner. Then she mixed few different nude shades of crayons to make another colour and dabbed it all over her lips using her index finger. Janhvi says she likes to dab her lipsticks as well and not swipe it across.
